  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup whole flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • ½ package of fresh yeast or 1 package of dry yeast
  • 2 tsp. salt

Tip: Use organic ingredients for the easy bread recipe. Organic products contain less traces of pesticides, which can damage your health.

The Recipe: Simple and Quick

This quick bread recipe is as easy as they come.

  1. Simply mix flour, seeds, salt and yeast by hand. Feel free to add any additional spices as preferred.
  2. Add the fruit vinegar and water, stir together once more (this time using a hand mixer).
  3. Thoroughly knead the dough one final time.
  4. Grease the bread pan with a bit of oil and add your dough.
  5. Sprinkle a handful of sesame seeds over the lot and it’s off into the (cold, not yet heated) oven.
  6. Set your oven to 390°F and let the bread bake for around 50 minutes. The time it takes your oven to warm up is enough to let the dough rise.
  7. Once the 50 minutes are up, turn the oven off and leave the bread in the heated oven for another 15 minutes. Your bread is done – congrats!

Baking bread almost always involves letting the dough rise. This step in many recipes makes the act of “baking bread” seem like lengthy and tedious process. This bread recipe makes things easy: you get to skip this step completely. The result is a loaf that is robust, moist and thick in consistency. Enjoy it as you please – either warm with a piece of butter or a vegetarian or vegan spread.
